A legless teen in Ohio who was told he cannot play during a game in Cincinnati because of a rule requiring players to wear shoes and knee pads will be allowed to play in future games, according to a Local 6 News report. Bobby Martin was told at halftime of a recent game at Mount Healthy High School in Cincinnati that he could not finish the game because of the shoes and knee pads rule. Martin said the decision made him feel disabled for the first time. After checking the case, the Ohio High School Athletic Association said game officials made a mistake when they kept Martin from playing last week, according to an Associated Press report. "The officials erred, but they erred on the side of caution," said Bob Goldring, an assistant commissioner with the OHSAA. "They did not want to see him get hurt."

"The Communists will defeat us, not by
virtue of their strength, but because
of our weakness. They will win by default."

Don't go feeling sorry for him, or thinking that he's out of his league. Have you seen what's being done with prosthetics these days? Dude can probably outrun either of us.

(of course, stand by for the inevitable lawsuit when the parents of some kid on the opposing team argues that the prosthetics give the legless kid some unfair advantage)
